Victor Herbert’s classic operetta “Babes in Toyland” comes to the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall on April 27.
The production is full of glorious melodies, and tells the story of mean Uncle Barnaby and his plot to get rid of his young niece and nephew, to get his hands on their inheritance.
With the help of several Mother Goose characters, the pair defeat his evil plans and bring happiness back to Toyland. MasterVoices presents the original score, including songs “Toyland,” “March of the Toys,” and “I Can’t Do the Sum,” and features Kelli O’Hara, Bill Irwin, Lauren Worsham, and Christopher Fitzgerald and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s with Ted Sperling conducting.
Recommended for children 8 years and older.
Babes in Toyland, April 27, 7 pm. Tickets range from $20 to $150.
